Take a Deep Dive into the Mysteries of Love, Healing, and Success.


The most important question in the universe is the one that nobody wants to ask: “Why does stuff happen?”

Everyone has ideas about this — that things happen by chance, or that God is involved, or that you’re the one moving the plot forward. But having an idea about what Bruce Miller calls Fortune is not the same as asking the question.

After studying the mystery for decades, Bruce confronted the question head-on when his business and his wife both collapse within the hour on New Year’s Eve.

Without warning, his wife, Karen, suffered a metastatic brain tumor with stage 4 lung cancer and seven months to live, while Bruce found himself without an income, plus four mortgages at an unemployable age.

Bruce and his wife struggle to reboot their lives as they navigate the world of doctors, gurus, and healers in this metaphysical inquiry, intimate love story, and madcap yarn,

Fortune explores the mysteries of relationships, healing, and personal triumph — all with a healthy dose of Bruce’s mystical wit and native Chicago humor.


“This is a riveting tale of risk, spiritual teachers and con-men, self-discovery, love, and healing, written with humor. I shared the paradox of studies with Reshad Feild, and applaud the honesty of this account, both the inspired teaching and the seamy underside. What a voyage, from razzle-dazzle California through stage 4 cancer, “following the bread crumbs” of Hazard and riding the Octave. Bruce shares his path to trusting and accepting what happens, while staying alert and without effort. Hurray for Karen, her buoyancy, and her heroic response to cancer. Bravo, Bruce, for being yourself and sharing it with us. He describes himself as “a consciousness guinea pig.” What is shared is real spiritual experience that includes the stumbles, doubts, and crises, with self-deprecating humor, and it is priceless.” – Subhana Ansari

“Fortune: Our Deep Dive…” is a must read for anyone on a journey of spiritual exploration. Weaving together traditions through the lens of life challenges and changes, Bruce takes us along on his quest for understanding the mechanics of chance, success, and enlightenment, bringing us to the point of understanding and acceptance; the place of doing and non-doing; of being in flow with the winds of FORTUNE.” – Corinne Chaves

“The author’s journey quickly becomes our own through this real-time deep dive into the mystery of Life’s unfolding. It’s tough to write much without feeling that you’re spoiling the ride for another reader, but the book welcomes us to join the author’s passionate search for wisdom, with all the vulnerability, curiosity, courage, and reflection that such a search requires. We meet famous and not so famous teachers, some of whom look a lot like house painters. By entering the author’s journey, we cannot help but reflect on and expand our own.” –  L Wilder
